Harrison Ford is reportedly going against the advice of his doctors, and is planning to return to the set of ‘Star Wars: Episode VII’ despite being told by medical professionals that he should be resting...
From Huffingtonpost (via JediNews):
The actor - who is reprising his role as Han Solo in the forthcoming seventh instalment of the epic sci-fi saga - was injured on the set of the film at Pinewood Studios, when he was crushed by a hydraulic door.
He was then taken to hospital where it was discovered he had a broken ankle, while it was claimed earlier this week that he may need to take as much as two months off from filming so he can fully recuperate.
However, it sounds like he might be planning to ignore this advice and return to filming sooner, with a source telling the Daily Express: “Clearly he won’t be able to do any physically demanding scenes and even walking will be a problem. But there are certain scenes that can be worked around Harrison’s injury.”
It was also previously claimed by Harrison’s son that camera trickery may mean that he’d be able to film certain scenes from the waist up while he recovers from his injuries.
All the rumors in the gossip site were exaggerated and there's no truth to the reports that Ford also injured his pelvis and chest.
Harrison Ford's left leg was broken in the injury he suffered while shooting the new Star Wars film, the US actor's publicist has confirmed.
It was previously believed the 71-year-old had broken an ankle in an incident involving a door at Pinewood Studios on 12 June.
"His surgery was successful and he will begin rehab shortly," continued Ina Treciokas in a statement.
"He's doing well and looks forward to returning to work."
